Large Heisey Puritan Horse Head Cigarette Box & Cover
Heisey produced its Puritan line from 1937 until 1957, with Puritan including a variety of smoking items. One such piece was this large 6" polished cigarette box with a lid sporting a handsome figural horse head finial.
Listed in Bredehoft's Heisey Glass book as ware #1489-1/2, this cigarette box is in very fine condition, with a small chip on one side of the lid, a nick on the inside base, a couple of tiny encased air bubbles and a cooling line, and light wear. (The list may seem a bit long, but the issues are actually quite minor.) Not marked, as is the case with many of the pieces in this line, with the fabulous crystal construction having a fine polished finish. Although present day use is not likely to be for holding cigarettes, this lidded box would be great for keeping all those dresser trinkets together and safe in one place.
Measures approx. 6-1/4" long, 4" wide, and 4" high.
